(0600 - 1430) Mild,SW.
Redpolls have at last started to move.The first two were caught during the week and this morning we managed to catch 5.This time last year we were catching hundreds.This run of SW/W winds,has certainly not helped matters.
A nice Hen Harrier (ring tail) flew over the ringing station at 1400.Unfortunately I didn`t see it,at the time I was walking back from a net round.
Blue Tit (5) + (2) retraps
Long-tailed Tit (30) + (5) retraps
On the way back to Snodland.I saw a Hobby,between Sandwich and Wingham.This is a late date for a Hobby to still be in Britain.
